University of Technology Nuremberg (UTN)

The University of Technology Nuremberg was founded on January 1st, 2021 and has been the first new foundation of a state-run university in Bavaria since 1978. With its consistently interdisciplinary approach, an innovative spectrum of subjects, new teaching methods and a future-oriented organizational structure, it will be a model university in the higher education landscape of Bavaria.

The University of Technology Nuremberg is interdisciplinary, international and digital. It is this interdisciplinary approach which will have an impact on teaching, studying and research. It is one of the major aims of the University of Technology Nuremberg to interlink engineering sciences with other topics of society. For this reason, the new university will not only offer engineering and technical sciences, but also humanities, natural and social sciences – and will combine them with each other. To put it simply: every student of the University of Technology Nuremberg will also study humanities and social sciences to a certain degree.

Pursuant to its international approach, most of the courses will be held in English. The digital approach of this institution will be reflected in corresponding teaching methods, equipment and certain teaching and research focuses. Another characteristic of the new university will be a good student-teacher ratio, with an envisaged student-teacher ratio of 1:25. Upon completion, up to 6,000 young people will be able to study on an urban campus, which is embedded in the surrounding quarters and which combines study, teaching and living.
